Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley has four children – Lindsie, Kyle, Savannah, and Chase. However, there is a fifth member of the Chrisley family who calls Todd “Dad.” Fans are wondering if the family patriarch forces Chloe Chrisley to call him that, or if there’s another explanation.
How Are Todd and Chloe Chrisley Related?
Todd’s four children are in their early 30s (Lindsie, Kyle,) and early 20s (Chase, Savannah.) So, new viewers may be confused by how eight-year-old Chloe fits into the family. Chloe is the son of Kyle and his ex-girlfriend, Angela Johnson. However, neither Kyle or Angela have legal custody of Chloe. Why not?
Both Kyle and Angela suffer from drug addiction. Todd and Julie Chrisley successfully fought for custody of their granddaughter. Kyle is working on putting his life back together while his parents raise his daughter.
Fan Question if Todd ‘Forces’ Chloe to Call Him “Dad”
A recent episode of Chrisley Knows Best showed a funny interaction between Todd and Chloe Chrisley. The youngster was filming a YouTube tutorial when Todd jumped in to “help.” At one point, Chloe shushed her grandpa and told him that she is the star of the video, not him. However, instead of calling Todd her grandfather, she called him “Dad.”
The official show account shared still photos of the hilarious interaction. While fans were amused by Chloe’s attitude, many others had questions about the way she addressed Todd.
In the midst of all the questions came a shocking allegation. One viewer couldn’t help but question if Todd forces Chloe to call him “Dad.” Why would he do that? So he doesn’t feel old by being known as a grandfather, the fan speculated.

That fan was the only one who speculated that it isn’t Chloe’s choice to call her grandfather “Dad.” However, many other fans of the show find it very strange. Check out some of the other comments left on the @chrisley_usa Instagram post.
- Chloe is Todd’s mini me, no doubts!
- I don’t like that she calls him Dad. He’s not her Dad, he’s her Grandfather
- same! It’s really weird. It was much better when it was Mimi and Papa.
- I agree. She also calls Julie, Mom. It’s just very strange. IMO, they should be called grandma/grandpa
- Why is Chloe calling him her dad????????
- He’s not even her dad 🤦🏻♀️ she already has one
As one fan notes, Chloe also calls Julie “Mom.” Todd and Julie have addressed the name situation in the past.
